Day 74: Reaction Types Lab

For Day 74, students completed the reactions types lab from the Modeling Instruction materials. This lab consists of a series of mini-experiments like burning magnesium and copper (combination/synthesis), heating sodium bicarbonate (decomposition), copper and silver nitrate and zinc and hydrochloric acid (single replacement), silver nitrate and calcium chloride (double displacement) and burning isopropyl alcohol (combustion).


This is a pretty meaty and lab and took 2, 41 minute periods to complete (not including discussion). Tomorrow we will whiteboard our observations and see if we can find some patterns!
